Abstract: The workers’ district of Bytom, Bobrek, with its steelworks and a coal mine for ‘the better future’ under Communism, has now become the terrifying subject of media accounts of pathologies and hopelessness. Children continue to play against the backdrop of the derelict buildings, but they gradually abandon their dreams. The Silesian Dance Theatre in Bytom organized dance workshops devoted to break-dance, hip-hop and funk in the area. Three boys, the main characters of the story, Andrzej, Daniel and Paweł, decided to create something to portray the way they live through dancing. With a group of other dancers they prepared a performance at the local theatre. During the premiere night their families and friends entered the theatre for the first time. Will their dream come true? This paper reflects on the making of the film Bobrek dance (2002).
